on pakistan. ascends drones that killed 1,000 people because pentagon officials say these people a terrorist? yes, says the american government and former u.n. ambassador john bolton says it is morally right to kill these people with drones and we are safer because of it. it does not seem morally right. take the word of some government officials that this guy is a terrorist and send a machine to kill him and to kill civilians along with him. >> well, the whole point of the war on terror from the perspective of the terrorist is to abuse the rules we have tried to create over hundreds of years to separate the combatants from innocent civilians. so the war on terror is different from traditional state to state war. the commander-in-chief authority vested by the constitution in the president gives in the direction over the were capabiliti of the united states. his efforts both in the bush and obama ainistration to go after the terrorist, i think is entirely justified both by the constitution and by our inherent right of self-defense. john: american kill anybody anywhere? >> of course not. listen
the military, the pentagon, the joint chiefs and so forth make clear what the implications will be to national security. it is a bad picture that is painted. liz: if it is not appropriate to properly, at least to the treasury, could the president say, we're willing to look in 85 billion in cuts just appropriated differently. now? >> there is no amount of flexibility or difference of appropriation and adjustments. install, forgo the kind of economic damage to national security damage that will occur if the sequesters on and will we need to do, we need to come around to doing and what congress ought to do is put forward a balanced approach that avoids all of that. it is not necessary for us to have to feel the economic pain that would be entailed. our economy has been moving along at an upward rate at least , pick up that pace. what will be a shame is tiffany's is why congress to rescind an as gears. that will be a self-inflicted wound that we should avoid. liz: less talk about other things that are -- coming to a groundswell. for example, dodd-frank. that is not entirely done. particularly the
is no one has a 100% grip on this. what's going on in the pentagon is being mirrored down the line as people are figuring out how to take the cut. they'll do the cuts in the most responsible fashion. that's the problem. lori: i understand. treasury had figures on defense spending in ten years. it's risen 54% in the last decade, a real increase. inflation adjusted, and obviously, two wars. that increase actually includes money spent under president obama too. a 2% overall federal budget cut, small potatoes, and considering it increased by that much in that period of time, there's a lot of fat in the military. >> well, i'm not sure if it's fat, but it is -- these are requirements that people saw that were funded by congress. everything was approved. every requirement was justified. every dollar in that defense program multiple layers. the administrators and bureaucrats said we need this. >> the sequesteration in development was designed to be so ridiculous cuts would never happen. are there better cuts for defense? do you have recommendations that make more sense than the punitive cuts tomorro
is now warning that the pentagon is planning a partial virgo. dagen: to wait in "wall street journal" board member, jason riley. if you look at, it will only be about 45 billion discretionary mandatory cuts. >> we are talking about 7% in defense, 5% and domestic spending. the sequestration goes through, you know, the first responders will go away. cities will burn. border control, at this rate, illegal immigrants will raid this country. connell: you think it is basically no big deal. it is a pretty small percentage. >> there are no efficiencies to be found in government? connell: some republicans will say we do not want to cut the fence. we would rather see the cuts come from elsewhere. >> i think they could be handled responsibly. republicans are trying to give the president some discretion on where the cuts are applied. harry reid and other democrats, however, respond to that. i think this can be done responsibly. whether it is domestic spending or defense. what the president does have in his advantage here is republicans are somewhat divided in this. i think it is important for th
. the house republicans are putting in a provision that will give agency heads especially at the pentagon the flexibility to decide how cuts are to be administered. the white house is resisting that. this is the empire, the empire striking back, stuart. big bloated government is going to fight for every penny it can get. even though it's only a penny on the dollar they're going to fight fiercely for it they know if it's done once it might be done again. stuart: let me summarize this. we would have these cuts in place until the end of march, and then, because we need to organize our government finances. >> because we haven't had a budget. stuart: we haven't had a budget, those cuts would stay in place and still be cutting the budget, but agency heads would be allowed to say we'll cut the conference budget, we won't cut personnel. >> yes. stuart: we'll cut the school janitor, but not the teacher say that after march 27th. >> that's what the republicans are moving toward. stuart: i can't see how the president could resist that. >> he wants to resist because the cuts would take place, for onc
